Survey reveals South East is environmentally conscious

A recent survey has revealed some interesting results regarding green living in the south east of England. The survey asked the nation about how environmentally-conscious people were in their day to day lives. Of those taking part in the survey, a significant number were based in the South East; in fact, more people responded in that part of the country than anywhere else.

The survey, conducted by Pod Space, discovered that those living in the South East were found to be one of the most environmentally conscious regions in England. Of those surveyed, 62.7% said that factors such as low emissions and fuel efficiency affected their decision when buying a car.

As for day-to-day living, the South East responded positively about their reasons for recycling, with 67.3% saying that they did so because they wanted to make a difference to the environment, with a further 40% saying that they found recycling a very convenient part of their day.

A breeze being green?

With recent news of government approved plans for an offshore wind farm to be constructed just off the coast of Sussex, the South East is set to becoming the one of the most environmentally conscious regions in the UK. According to the BBC, the wind farm could potentially generate enough electricity to power 450,000 homes and construction is due to commence in 2015.

Should it come to fruition, then reliance on crumbling power stations is sure to fall in the long-term. For now, using electricity sparingly is the norm for many eco-friendly households throughout the South East.

About Carrie Cort

My name is Carrie Cort, I set up Sussex Green Living out of concern for the way we humans are treating the planet which sustains us. With motherhood in 2008 came concern about environmental sustainability and a burning desire to learn how we can live more environmentally friendly lifestyles, in harmony with nature. I have always had a passion for the countryside, animals and the natural environment. Most of my career has been spent in marketing and communications, mainly within education and the landbased industries, latterly using the power of video communications. In an effort to help create a climate for change I decided to use my knowledge and digital skills to share ideas which anyone can adopt, saving money and the planet. I’m not an expert, just an ordinary person who is on a greening journey and wanting to pass on what I’ve learnt to others. Let’s all make some simple changes, become more resilient and try to lead simpler, less materialistic and consumerist way of life.
